College Counseling Services
We believe that the college search, application, and decision-making process should be student-focused, incorporating the Ignatian practices of reflection and discernment. In other words, we want to help students discover who they are and articulate what they are hoping for from their college experience. We help students identify their strengths, weaknesses, and goals that will allow us to provide practical and timely information about applying to college.
Every student is assigned a college counselor and will receive target programming to that is age and grade specific. We meet with students and families in seminars, workshops, and on an individual basis to help to ensure students and families are informed of current research, trends, and practices. Most programming is open to all students and families regardless of grade; this is including, but not limited to: College visits, Financial Aid presentation(s), Parent Panels, Post-secondary Spotlight seminars.
The College Counselor’s role is not only to help the student identify schools that meet their needs, navigate the application process, and decide what school to attend; but to inform and affirm who they are as people and point them toward opportunities after high school that will stretch them spiritually, intellectually, and encourage a sense of agency
